If you've been to Burger & Lobster before, you'll instantly get it here for there are no discernible changes to the format, it's burger, lobster or lobster roll, all at £20. There's desserts that come in a tub, and that's it. Staff in the new branch are as friendly as ever including Saraa who looked after us wonderfully on our visit, and despite the new venue having been open only a few days when we ate there, everything ran smoothly.
The interior of the new branch is a little different to the other two outlets. The site itself is quite large but it's naturally partitioned into a number smaller areas so generally feels more cosy and less frantic. The bar has its own area and the grill is in the middle of the restaurant, open plan, so you can see your lobster on the grill, and smell it cooking. For the décor it's exposed brick and wood.
There were no queues on our visit and I suspect that the Farringdon branch will see fewer queues generally. Lunch time could well be popular with City folk nearby though the Bread Street branch will shortly take much of that crowd anyhow. The overall impact then of Farringdon is likely to make Burger & Lobster yet more accessible; given its popularity, that's surely a good thing.
